The presidential campaign was so exciting we almost forgot that the whole idea of electing a new president was to make a difference out here in….Yonder. So we turn to a piece in The Ethicurean (a food blog) that reviews the food policies of President-elect Obama.
“So what might we expect from an Obama administration when it comes to food policy?,” asks The Ethicurean. “Maybe quite a bit.” The blog gives a handy list of Obama’s policies that are “a departure from the status quo,” such as a country or origin labeling (COOL) system for meat. Obama supports ethanol while The Ethicurean is skeptical, calling on the new president to “talk, openly, about the challenges of ethanol.” The full Obama rural plan can be found here.
